Jeff Jaran is the police chief of Provincetown, Massachusetts. Last week, while attending an election victory party that took place at a bar, Jaran heard N.W.A.'s "Fuck Tha Police" for the first time. Naturally, lyrics such as "Beat tha police outta shape/And when I'm finished, bring the yellow tape," offended the police officer severely, to the point that he complained to an employee to turn the song off. The following day, Jaran called the bar's owner to resolve the issue, and he received an e-mail apology shortly thereafter.
Apparently, "Fuck Tha Police" playing while Jaran was in the bar may not have been an ironic coincidence. It seems as though the politician whose election everyone was celebrating, Thomas Donegan, has beef with the Provincetown police department. Donegan believes that the town must cut down on the department budget. Donegan denies responsibility for the song selection. Provincetown's Town Manager is currently investigating the matter.
The best part? The bar is called The Squealing Pig. Ironic.
